Can you boot into Safe Mode and remove that program, or does Safe Mode not work?

If so, you can try to use System Restore while in Safe Mode in order to restore you computer to a point in time before you had True Sword.
PS: I have plenty of ideas . We just gotta figure out which one works . If you can't use System Restore doesn't work in Safe Mode, I've got 3 more things you can try.

"Rogue/Suspect" means that these products are of unknown, questionable, or dubious value as anti-spyware protection.
Some of the products listed on this page simply do not provide proven, reliable anti-spyware protection or may be prone to ridiculous false positives. Others may use unfair, deceptive, high pressure sales tactics to scare up sales from gullible, confused users. A very few of these products are either associated with known distributors of spyware/adware or have been known to install spyware/adware themselves.

Here's the 3 things you can try, from the most likely to work to the least likely:
1. Repair Windows XP. You will need an XP CD. If you are not sure how to initiate a repair, check out this link: http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html
2. Run chkdsk /r You can do this from Run in the Start Menu, from Task Manager, or a DOS prompt. Note the space between chkdsk and /r. You may or may not need an XP CD.
3. Download the trial version of Aston. You can temporarily use it instead of Explorer to uninstall True Sword, and then check your computer for further infections. It may not be possible for you to install Aston in your current situation.
Let me know how it goes.

I installed Aston and got a start menu back, cool! I used AVG to search for infections and there are none. I uninstalled True Sword as soon as I realized it was weird, and it is not showing on the add/remove list.
Any other ideas?
